    I've been using SyncToy for quite a few months to keep in sync some folders between my laptop and the other two machines I have in office, and it always worked just great for me (I know, I should be using Groove instead but I'm not happy to have services and programs running when they want, instead of...
  • Blog Post: Process on Vista: Administrator or user?

    This is an easy (and maybe already known) one for this hot summer day: how can you know if a process on Vista is running as ad Administrator or as a user? Process Explorer will tell you:   Carlo
  • Blog Post: Google uses .NET...?!?

    Have a look at this link: https://survey.google.com/wix/p0986235.aspx Uhm... let's have a look at the source HTML of the page, and we'll not find the "_VIEWSTATE" hidden field (it should be there also if we disable the viewstate in the @Page directly and for every control in the page) and the...

  • Blog Post: Vista and CHM

    Now I understand why I have troubles viewing the electronic MSDN Magazine , have a look at this post from Chris Crowe...

    I just realized that my last post is 20 days old... I spent this time working on support calls I own (or course, that's my job!), reading documentation and playing to get ready for the upcoming releases I'm quite sure you already heard about ( Vista , Ajax , IIS 7 , Internet Explorer 7 ...), reading...
